​Girls Ride Horses Too

This song is by Judy Rodman and appears on the album A Place Called Love (1987).

He said life on the border is a little bit rough
If you're gonna love me you gotta be tough
Beyond the law anything goes
When you're livin' on the edge of Mexico
I heard all he said but I didn't believe
Not till I tried to keep him close to me

He rode away in a cloud of dust
Chasing Laredo and lady luck
His bags were full of who knows what
I knew what I had to do
Girls ride horses too

I rode all day tracking him down
Spent the night on dangerous ground
Smelling the smoke of a distant fire
Feeling the flame of my desire
But nothing in the desert is what it seems
All that I know is in my dreams

He rode away in a cloud of dust
Chasing Laredo and lady luck
His bags were full of who knows what
I knew what I had to do
Girls ride horses too

I crossed the river as the sun came up
Drank his tequila from his silver cup
Traded his bags for a sack of gold
And got a little taste of Mexico
If he's gonna love me he's gotta get tough
Life on the border is a little bit rough

He rode away in a cloud of dust
Chasing Laredo and lady luck
His bags were full of who knows what
I did what I had to do
Girls ride horses too

He rode away in a cloud of dust
Chasing Laredo and lady luck
His bags were full of who knows what
I did what I had to do
Girls ride horses too

Girls ride horses too
Girls ride horses too
I did what I had to do
Girls ride horses too
I love to ride 'em too
